    Instead of removing it from the device manager just disable it there.

    Rossco you don't i just removed mine a few weeks ago.

    Step 1: Unplug Floppy Drive and remove cable.

    Step 2:Go into BIOS and change Boot Priority so ita CD-ROM then Hard Disk i think it goes or other way round just do not have Floppy there.

    Step 3:In device manager do not unistall it becuase Windows XP will just detect itagain when you boot up (well did when i did it) just disable it and you are all done.
